I paint with attention to form and precision like never before.. When I started to paint from intuition and reaction my world changed. My paintings begin with one small shape and color and take off from there. From my humble beginning the outcome is an adventure and a dialogue with the unknown. My paintings started to evolve of their own volition and they literally started to paint themselves. This process became exciting and energizing. My brush is the leader and I am the follower.
